Your Retained Employment Law Solicitors


Our fixed fee employment law services provide cost-effective access to high level experts.

If you receive notification from ACAS of a potential claim or a Tribunal serves you with proceedings from a disgruntled employee, it can be time consuming and expensive to comply with timescales and Tribunal orders. We take on this burden for you: dealing with the claim, drafting documentation and providing representation at the Tribunal and liaising with ACAS. Your legal costs are controlled for each stage of the claim.

Keeping up to date with changes in employment law and Human Resources is difficult - especially when you have other competing demands like running your business. Getting the balance wrong can be time consuming and costly.

We know costs must be managed and unpredicted incidents are a burden. With a fixed annual fee spread over the year, it doesn't matter how often you contact us for advice and help. We excel in employment law and HR, so we'll add our legal strength and excellence to your business. It is a bespoke, fixed cost employment law and HR support package, tailored to your needs and budget. We'll save you time and money.

From day one we help put you in the strongest position possible, so that you can concentrate on running your business.
